Ever seen a children’s dot-to-dot puzzle? Sometimes the truth can be like one; you start with the first dot, move to the next one, and eventually a picture forms. Such was the case with this statement Jesus made to the Jewish leaders:

“Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it.” – John 2:19b NKJV

They didn’t understand His real meaning at the time, but John says the disciples eventually did:

“Therefore, when He had risen from the dead, His disciples remembered that He had said this to them; and they believed the Scripture and the word which Jesus had preached.” – John 2:22 NKJV

The Lord was speaking truth, even though they didn’t “get it” until later. Jesus never anxiously rushed the revelation of truth for fear of being misunderstood, because He was working according to the Father’s timeline. He knew they would eventually see the picture formed from the “dots” and what a powerful realization it would be!

Along the journey of faith, there are dots all around. Sometimes they’re connected, and other times not. Perhaps you’re trying to connect some right now. If so, remember who’s placing the dots, because the moment the picture comes together, it will be amazing!
